Until your good is better,
and your better – best!
I had a scoop of hot fudge for breakfast this morning. It was the best!
You want to know why?
Because I could….
because I have EIGHT jars of Smucker’s Special Recipe Hot Fudge and Triple Berry Ice Cream Toppings in my pantry.
Why do I have 8 jars, you ask?
Because I happened to be observant at the grocery store last month when they were on sale for Buy One, Get One Free….
and if that wasn’t a good enough deal, I noticed a “peelie” right there on the jar.
(Remember the definition?)
You got it right; not a single coupon was cut, or brought with me in my coupon binder.
There was a peelie coupon that told me I could get another instant .50 off, and then my beloved store went and doubled that peelie coupon for me. Hmmm… I decided that I would just use one for my free hot fudge as well, and they doubled that too.
Yes, you can use one coupon for each item purchased – even if it is free.
Well, since I was on such a roll, and not wanting to be a total glutton, I gathered all the treats that my little arms could carry, but saved a few for the few employees that gathered around me at the cash register to see my steals – I mean deals.
Yes, you are picturing this scenario correctly. I believe in sharing the love, and I was totally feeling it.
So….here I am….a middle aged mom of five (did I just admit that…I don’t feel middle aged), calling over all the college age students working the register to check out my hot fudge deals. I even coached the dairy guy on how he could win his girlfriend’s undying love if he would go buy one of these delicious delicacies, tie a big fat ribbon around it, and declare, “not even this is as sweet as you.”
(I did share that he should keep how much he spent a secret…let her think it was a splurge).
I then told them exactly what they needed to do, and that they too could indulge in hot fudge over breakfast for only .50 a jar if they followed this simple tip…
Because when you find that big score…
it’s the best, and you better share the great news with me. 🙂
